Closest StoreToronto (Bloor St.), Ontario
I sold my last standard sized guitar a few years ago. I've been playing smaller scaled guitars ever since. And here's another one to add to the collection. Being a fan of smaller scaled guitars, naturally I'm biased. But I'll give an honest assessment of how I see this one. Here's how I rated it and why... Features: two humbuckers, a three way toggle switch, and a volume and tone control. It doesn't get much more basic than that. And all works well. The placement of the toggle switch might be an issue for some (it's not hard to imagine some players hitting it by accident) but I'm fine with it. Quality: I gave it five stars for being what you get for the $250 price tag. It's not going to blow the American mades out of the water but I've really bonded with the instrument on fairly brief acquaintance. I love the fact that you get a maple fretboard (not exactly all that common on a short scale Squier) and the overall guitar itself has a nice feel to it. Fit and finish is first rate (love the color, btw). Value: It's being sold at an entry-level price, as already indicated, so you can't knock that. As an offering from the Squier Mini family expectations might not have been high but I've got to admit, I'm thoroughly enjoying it. It's currently my favorite guitar and that might not change once the honeymoon's over and I've had it a few months. In fact, this might have been a sleeper that I let get by based on various early reviews but am I ever glad I jumped on it. This really nails it for me. Overall: Again, for $250, and loving it as much as I do, it's been a long time since a budget Squier has put such a broad smile on my face. I'm so glad that I bought it. Also, if you were to stand the Jazzmaster side by side with the mini strat, the Jazzmaster is taller by about an inch, giving the guitar a little more heft than your usual mini. The strap buttons are pretty small so buy a strap with really stiff leather button ends. This will make things manageable for playing while standing up. Either that or buy new strap buttons and install them yourself. And...that's about it. I've found this guitar to be one of those hidden gems that players hope to find in the budget lineup but so seldom do. But treasures like this are the rewards of all that searching and the reason why we do it. At least that's how I see it. Anyway, I hope this helps. Mark
